Abstract

Ensuring access to essential medicines is technically feasible, but politically challenging. As young people, we believe it is time to give new meaning to essential medicines as a shared global challenge and responsibility. The report of the Youth Commission on Essential Medicines Policies presents a vision of the global health system—one in which medicines will be regarded as global public goods. Although we welcome and support the report of the Lancet Commission on Essential Medicines Policies, we believe that more comprehensive change is necessary to truly transform access to medicines.
